"Brian, Our fishing tips that we booked with you were outstanding. My kids and I had a great time. Our guides Chuck and Tony were professional, attentive, enjoyable and provided great instruction. They easily adjusted to 3 people with different levels of interest and experience in fly fishing, allowing all of us to really get the most out of the trips and enjoy the fishing in our own way. The rivers we went on were beautiful and we caught tons of fish. The overnight camping was a really fun time, great food and a relaxed atmosphere. The trip definitely met my expectation and we hope to come out and do it again. The Rainbow Ranch was a wonderful place to stay, we especially enjoyed being right on the river. Overall, you did a great job, from early planning figuring out what we wanted, to setting up all the pieces of the itinerary and then the guides were fantastic through out the trip. I had a few suggestions for the camping portion, pillows would make sleeping more comfortable, a flashlight or little lantern in the tents would be convenient and a small piece of indoor/outdoor carpet in front of the tent would keep the tents much cleaner. Thank you and hope to talk to you again for another trip!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and had a great learning experience with both Sean and Chuck. I concur with your assessment that they are some of the most knowledgeable guides in Montana. On my next fishing trip I will request them by name. They both have different teaching styles but were equally effective. They both loved fly fishing and their passion for teaching was obvious. On a 1-10 scale they were both 10s. Steve and Keith over at the Gallatin River Lodge could not have been nicer. The accommodations were everything I expected and more. They also have some of the prettiest ladies in Montana working there."

"Fly fishing in Montana is something that every fly fisherman can aspire to. Although all the guide services are across the board more expensive than other locations, you cannot go wrong with Montana Anglers. Miles McGeehan is the best of all the guides I have ever used and taught me many new casting skills, as well as enabling me to catch fish on the trip. I highly recommend him."

"My son and I had never been fly fishing and we did a half day lesson/fishing time and came out of it feeling comfortable on being able to try this on our own and appreciating the experience. Scott was very professional, knowledgeable and able to teach us very well in a short time. We will do this again."
"From the guides we have hired in the past, Colter is the tops. He was 20 minutes early and was eager to get us on the river. He made sure we were comfortable and worked very hard finding the right bugs for us to use. He had a great sense of humor and since my brother and I banter back and forth, Colter didn't hesitate to give me or my brother a hard time, especially if we missed our mark on a cast by a couple of inches. In addition to Colter, you and your staff was a pleasure as well. No hassles at all, you were very accommodating, polite and responsive and your service was very good. I can confidently say if we find ourselves wanting to get pampered by a guide again in Montana, Montana Angler, will be our first call."
"I wanted to send you a note to let you know what a fantastic trip I had with the guides you selected. Doug put us into a great spot on the Yellowstone with lots of fish, remote, a good hike to put us in the real wilderness. My kids will never forget that day on the water. I also enjoyed talking with Doug about the business side of guiding. Colter also worked his backside off on the Ruby. The river requires more precision in casting, line management, and fly selection and Colter helped my daughters all day, and when we got onto a bunch of big fish sitting tightly in shallow water, he changed dozens of flies for me until we hooked 5 and landed 3 beautiful browns!"
"Our Smith River camping and fishing trip was terrific. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The fishing, scenery, food and staff were all outstanding. We did not have single hiccup on the entire trip. The professionalism of the guides and camp staff made the trip effortless for all the clients. Every single person helped us personally in some way. The rotation of guides was fun and helpful. We will definitely plan another fishing trip with Montana Angler again." -Chuck Harrell
"Thanks for your follow up! We definitely felt that our fishing trip exceeded our expectations. The lodging accommodations were excellent and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Matt Morris. He did a fantastic job for us and was as knowledgeable and professional as they come. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt and Montana Angler to anyone interested in a great fly fishing experience in Montana.Thanks again for making our trip special and hope to be back with you soon!"
"I have such fond memories of my trip to Montana, and you, Bill and fishing were the best parts hands down. Thank you for being such a patient and kind teacher. I never felt silly and was able to do some amazing fishing, even with just starting to learn. I can close my eyes and still relive sight fishing with dry flies towards the end of our day. It was truly epic!! In addition, I feel I learned so much from you - you helped create a true confidence inside of me to be able to go on my own and not bumble around. Thank you for fueling a passion that has and will stay with me. Not a single day goes by that I don't think about fly fishing or dream of another trip to Montana! I hope you are able to guide me again some day soon on the river. My oldest son is already looking forward to meeting you! Hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks again for everything, and for your endless patience."
